My wife has a quilt her grandmother made circa 1930. She wanted a way to display it rather than keep it packed away. When we saw the design in the Dec.1997 edition of Wood Magazine, she asked if I would build one. Frankly, I had just started doing better quality woodworking and had never worked with cherry before. All it took was this one project to get me hooked on building with cherry and other quality hardwoods.

For our application, we needed to reduce the overall length so the hanger would fit on the wall where we wanted to mount it. I reduced it from the original 64” long and 6-1/4” wide dimension to 52” long by 3.25” wide. All other components were also reduced proportionally.

Bill, I really like that Quilt hanger. We have a smaller Quilt our daughter made and would love to make a hanger for it. Any idea if the pattern is on line as well?

Larry, the plan is available on the Wood Magazine website here. I found it straightforward to scale it to our needs. Let me know if you need more input about that.

Bill – yours looks great too. I guessed at the assembly on mine based on pics from internet – I had no idea there were actual plans! This must have been a popular piece back when they did that article. I too based mine on the length I needed. If anyone plans on making one they should look for a list of standard quilt sizes and adjust accordingly.
